Re: Arrangements for On-Site Networks at Hilton Head
I have just spoken with Don Berry regarding the arrangements for On-Site Networks
at Hilton Head. He indicated that he will be meeting with the service contractor
this afternoon to finalize a statement of work for what is required, which he will
forward to me when it is complete. I will forward this document to the SEC for
review and comment (with approval from Bob Grow required).
I have informed Don that we do not do Purchase Orders and that we typically
contract for work by means of a letter of agreement, which he said would most
likely be OK. He will let me know if there is a problem with this.
I need to remind all involved in this that when this motion was approved it was
specifically stated that Vic Hayes & Paul Nikolich were to be the prime movers
on this project and that Buzz & Dawn&Co "already had too much on their plate"
and could not be expected to provide much support for this effort. Don has agreed
to do much of the logistical support for this meeting and hopes to make the project
a simple "turn-key" operation for the future, but Vic & Paul will need to take on the
supervisory responsibility for the future or to find alternate persons who are willing
to do the job. There will be ongoing efforts required; count on it !!!
I have agreed with Don that if he will put together an announcement memo of the
services to be offered and what to do to prepare to be a participant, I will forward
the memo to the 802-ALL exploder and to the WG chairs for broadcast to their
individual WGs. This should get us adequate coverage. The memo must identify
a person or persons who may be contacted for further information and support,
and that person may NOT be myself or Dawn&Co.
Please cooperate to make this a useful enhancement to our plenary meetings and
I think we need to review the participation and the value-add of this project at SEC
to ensure that we are deriving sufficient general benefit to justify the efforts and costs.
